Ancient Egyptian Ushabti for an ancient Egyptian named 'NES-MIN'. This piece is in outstanding condition, with original glaze and extremely clear hieroglyphics. The facial features on this piece are in incredible condition. The face, eyes, nose, ears, false beard, and hands crossed mummiform over the chest are all clear to this piece and are visible in surprising detail! He wears a lappet wig, carries a sulk and hoe, and has a nicely defined back dorsal pillar, which indicates that this piece is from the 26th Dynasty. The piece is a very significant 4.5" tall. This piece features a very even surface glaze that is in outstanding condition. This glaze is very significant because of its very thick, bright blue color. This is a very rare original specimen. This ushabti is an excellent, bright display piece. 26th Dynasty, 664 - 350 B.C. Please see additional photographs for detailed views of the hieroglyphics. TRANSLATION: Provided to purchaser.
